Children in Oxfordshire will be seen more clearly this winter thanks to a donation of high-visibility vests to mark Road Safety Week (17-23 November).
Specsavers Didcot donated 400 high-visibility vests to ensure local children are seen when out and about. The store gave out vests to; Chilton Primary School, Cholsey Primary School, Clifton Hampden Primary School, Hagbourne Primary School, Harwell Primary School, Long Wittenham Primary School, South Moreton Primary School and Thame Primary School.
‘Child safety, particularly in the winter when visibility is limited, is extremely important to us,’ says Ruksana Bi, store director at Specsavers in Didcot.
‘Keeping in theme with this year’s Road Safety Week message to look out for each other, which includes making sure children can be seen clearly, we wanted to give out the vests to help ensure children’s safety in the town.’
Specsavers is the co-sponsor of Road Safety Week, the UK’s flagship road safety event, which is organised by road safety charity Brake. It’s an opportunity to help raise awareness about the importance of protecting people on bikes and foot as well as raise funds for a worthwhile cause.
